Alberta Falls




Well, Day 2 at Rocky Mountain NP was another “keeper”. The morning started out with very little elk activity at Moraine Park. After a short while, I packed up and drove to another spot where elk often occupy in the park, the Beaver Meadows area. Bingo! A very large bull elk was tending to his […]

Fun Friday: Not “(Quite)” What It Looks Like!




During my July trip to Glacier NP, I caught some flack from my wife. As we drove along the top of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, I was mesmerized by the many waterfalls that were active across the valley. At one point, I saw a good pullout and decided to grab a scenic shot of one of […]

Mountainside Waterfall




Yesterday’s post featured some Blue Columbine wildflowers with a waterfall in the background. Today’s post focuses on the waterfall from a different angle. The maroon wildflowers in front of the waterfall are King’s Crown (Rhodiola integrifolia), a rather low-growing wildflower that reaches from 4-12 inches. Each flower head is ~1 inch wide. Here are a […]

Fun Friday: Fresh Air in the Mountains




Today’s Fun Friday post is a “writer’s choice” selection. While maybe not so much funny, it is an image that holds strongly in my mind. While exploring Yankee Boy Basin, we came upon this wonderfall waterfall, surrounded by wildflowers, particularly the Blue Columbine: More wildflower and scenic images coming up, from Yankee Boy Basin. Photographic […]

Go With the Flow




Back in September, I traveled to Minnesota’s North Shore to photograph the fall colors. Along the shores of Lake Superior, Tettegouche State Park lies. The Baptism River runs through the park, making it’s way down to the lake. And on the Baptism River lies Illgen Falls. Here are a few images of the Baptism River, […]

The Cascades




My last post featured the wonderful Cascade Waterfall at Cascade State Park, along Minnesota’s North Shore. Today’s post features the same river, just upstream of where the Cascade Falls are located. Although not much drop in height, the water rushes so quickly among the rocks that this type of water feature makes some wonderful photography, […]

Minnesota – Glen Avon Falls (Re-post)




(This post originally published in August, 2010) The Glen Avon Falls, at first glance, seems like a misnomer. I’ve got to say that at first look, this feature was lacking in charisma to me! After all, there doesn’t seem to really be any “falls”. Rather, this unique setting is more like a placid little creek […]

Minnesota – Illgen Falls (Re-post)

In this blog post, I am highlighting Illgen Falls, which is located on the Baptism River. Illgen Falls is not a large waterfall, weighing in at ~45 feet tall, but is a […]
